"We were stuck in a jam and were curious at what happened because there were so many SCDF and police vehicles around," she said.

In response to a Stomp media query, an SCDF spokesman said they were alerted to an incident at 7 Balestier Road at around 1pm.

"The fire involved a treadmill inside a gym," the spokesman said.
